AnaMod : ATS-1 Tape Simulator

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: * Amels And Gualtieri Team Up To Form AnaMod *

*
(Gillette, New Jersey, USA – January 10, 2007) - AnaMod will debut the first in a line of new analog audio products, the ATS-1 Analog Tape Simulator, at the 2007 Winter NAMM show in Anaheim.* The ATS-1 is entirely analog, and is the first to be designed by a new technique called the AnaMod Process™.* Mathematical analysis similar to the type used to create DSP plugins is used to design analog audio processing hardware, eliminating the need to digitize the audio.* This represents an entirely new way to design analog products using techniques that were previously only available to DSP designers.

AnaMod LLC is a new company founded by two well-known audio industry veterans, Dave Amels (Bomb Factory Digital and Voce), and Greg Gualtieri (Pendulum Audio).

“Dave and I were talking over dinner at AES a couple of years ago about mathematical models we use to analyze audio equipment” says Greg. “We found that we were both pulling on the same rope; Dave on the digital end and me on the analog end.”*

Dave says, “My background is the analog world, so when I was creating digital plugins for Bomb Factory, I came to see how the two worlds were really the same.”

The ATS-1 Analog Tape Simulator has all the important features of a two-track analog tape machine, including speed selection, bias, low frequency and high frequency EQ, and the option of adding tape hiss, if desired. It precisely models the behavior of specific tape machines and tape formulations, and allows the user to select from up to four machine and tape types.* Optional machine and tape types will be available on easy-to-install SIMM cards. Unlike digital plug-ins or processor-based outboard gear, there is no latency, and no A/D or D/A conversions to compromise the sound.

The ATS-1’s list price is $2,995.00.* Orders will be taken at NAMM with shipments beginning in the second half of Q1 of 2007.

Greg and Dave will demo the ATS-1 in booth #6254.

Contact Greg Gualtieri or Dave Amels*at (201-728-8490), [email protected] or visit http://www.anamodaudio.com for photos and more information

Huh? Previous posts?

Do you guys even know what you're talking about or are you just blurting out words that seem cool to say on Gearslutz?

Have you heard this thing?
Do you know what or how it does what it does?

Didn't think so

Any plans for the "cassette" model. Some days I just can't be bothered pulling the old 4-track out of the cupboard. There's just something about 3.5ips that makes everything sound great...

it is a hassle for a lot of us to rent or loan out gear just to try it - especially those low on reputation and/or income and audio demos always help on making a important buying decision.

sorry.

Yes perhaps 'software' is innacurate - I mean digital domain, voodoo - software coding.

to the best of my knowledge, there's no digital jiggery pokery going on in the ATS-1.
that is, unless they're being disingenuous about the product.
